GESSEL offers comprehensive advice in the area of competition law, including:
- Assessing the need to secure authority from the President of the Office for Competition and Consumer Protection for transactions involving mergers and acquisitions and large asset purchases, drafting of the relevant applications
- Assessment of measures taken by business enterprises from the perspective of their compliance with competition protection laws (e.g. the legality of agreements between enterprises, advice with respect to pricing policies), internal audits, competition law training for managerial cadres
- Drafting of replies to questionnaires addressed to enterprises by the Office for Competition and Consumer Protection in the context of market studies
- Representation of business enterprises in proceedings before the Office for Competition and Consumer Protection and the Court of Competition and Consumer Protection in cases concerning concentrations, competition-inhibiting agreements, abuse of dominant market position, and consumer protection
We also advise on issues relating to protection of fair competition, trademarks, and copyright. In these areas, our competition law department cooperates closely with the intellectual property team headed by Dorota Bryndal, a partner in GESSEL.
